WYG scoops double at APM Project Management Awards

The road/rail transfer point at Glen Douglas in Argyll and Bute, Scotland.

WYG has won the Project of the Year: Specialists award and Social Project of the Year at the APM Project Management Awards.

The APM awards recognise the professional management of complex projects and programmes both in the UK and overseas. WYG won its Project of the Year: Specialists award for its work on a new road/rail transfer point at Glen Douglas in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. Working on behalf of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, the project allowed the firm to demonstrate its project management and multidisciplinary design services by replacing deteriorating infrastructure and enabling the reinstatement of critical military capability.

Commenting on the award, Andrew Fotherby, divisional director at WYG, said: “This is a fantastic recognition of the strategy we’ve set out to deliver the highest standard of projects and services for our clients.”

WYG’s Building Back Better work with Community Action Nepal (CAN) was recognised as Social Project of the Year. The project involved supporting CAN’s efforts to rebuild essential infrastructure in Nepalese local communities to provide new and replacement health care and education facilities after the devastating 2015 earthquakes. 

Dave Corbin, head of project management at WYG, commented: “To see this kind of recognition for not just one, but two projects, fills the team with pride and bolsters our resolve to continue going above and beyond in delivering the level of service our clients expect from us.”

As the firm celebrated its APM Awards, its support for CAN continues. WYG is sponsoring an art exhibition in London, entitled “Doug Scott - High Exposure” which will feature stunning photography depicting the 8,000-metre ascent to the top of Mount Everest by CAN founder and renowned mountaineer, Doug Scott. The exhibition at D Contemporary Gallery, Mayfair, London opens to the public on 1 December.
